Paper Abstract

This paper describes an automatic target detection algorithm based on the sequential multi-stage approach. Each stage of the algorithm uses more spectral bands than the previous stage. To ensure high probability of detection and low false alarm rate, Chebyshev's inequality test is applied. The sequential approach enables a significant reduction in computational time of a hyperspectral detection system. The Forest Radiance I database collected with the HYDICE hyperspectral sensor at the U.S. Army Proving Ground in Aberdeen, Maryland is utilized. Scenarios include targets in the open, with footprints of 1 m and different times of day. The total area coverage and the number of targets used in this evaluation are approximately 6 km2 and 126, respectively.
